VIVA with increased test capacity

Through an agreement with TrønderEnergi Kraft AS, VIVA can offer use of TrønderEnergi Krafts facilities at Titran, Frøya, for test purposes. The site includes a 400kW wind turbine witch can be used for pilot scale testing of components.

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) runs a meteorological station for wind measuring at Titran. The station includes four meteorological masts, measurement equipment and a service building.

Oil companies has declared the Titran area especially good for measuring of undisturbed ocean wind. The Norsok-standard, which specifies the wind climate for design of offshore constructions, is based on measurements from this station.

Based on this, Titran is well suited for developing and testing technology for offshore wind turbines.
